Cops rescue two dogs roasting in car in 24C heat as owner moans ‘you’ve broke my window out’

June 13, 2021

THIS is the moment cops rescued a beagle and another dog from a roasting hot car – moments before the owner complained they had broken her window.

Footage shows police officers desperately breaking into the parked car on Brighton Seafront yesterday evening.

The clip begins with one of the officers forcing his baton through the top of a back window before smashing it open in the surging heat.

As the car alarm goes off, the owners can be seen rushing towards it, pleading with the cops involved.

A woman can be heard saying: "You broke my window out", as she and her family stand in horror.

An officer responds: "It's a hot day. You shouldn't be leaving the dog in the car in this weather."

Dozens of beachgoers could be seen watching the panic unfold as temperatures surged to 25C in parts of the UK yesterday.

But one local, who filmed the action, said the owners appeared to be unaware the heat could be deadly for their pooches.


"Where they had parked there is just no shade," the 20-year-old onlooker told The Sun Online.

"It’s directly on the seafront in 25C weather outside – I've got no idea what it was inside the car.”

The witness said he saw one of the dogs panting in the car, from a "solid black cage" in the back.

But its owners were fuming when they found cops had broken in.

"At first it was 'what the f*** are you doing, why did you break my car window? I was only gone for 10 minutes'," the witness said.

"The bloke obviously thought he was completely in the right. He didn’t really seem to have much empathy.”

According to the RSPCA, cars can become "as hot as an oven" very quickly – with temperatures of 22C outside, soaring to 47C in a car within the space of an hour.

And cops urge anyone who sees a dog in a scorching vehicle to dial 999.

A police spokesperson told The Sun Online: "Sussex Police were called about two dogs left locked inside a car in the heat of the day yesterday on Madeira Drive, Brighton.

"Police officers attended and tried to get a contact number for the owners of the car but were unable.

"Officers had no choice but to smash the side window to gain access and a kind member of the public donated a bottle of water.

"The owners were given strong words of advice on returning to the car a short time later.

"The dogs, who were much improved after fresh air and water, were left with the owners. Dog owners should never leave a dog alone in a car on a warm day. If you see a dog in distress in a hot car, dial 999. "
